Moisture proof respirator
I sweat profusely and need to use a respirator when working around pollins. The respirator that I have now clogs up from sweat and I can't breath at all. Can you put me on to a respirator that works well for pollens and doesn't clog up with sweat? Thank you

I can't really endorse a specific brand but in my experience dealing with sweat in the mask is much like dealing with long hair in your face, you flick your head and give a good blow. Do this with your head tipped so that the sweat in the mask gets blown out the waste vent(s).
If you're using simple pressed-felt-on-face masks, simply stop using them. They're primarily to stop direct large particulate aspiration and aren't very effective against pollens. They aren't very effective at letting air through either and for the most part tend to allow a large amount of bypass.
Several brands of silicone masks carry simple HEPA-only cartridges, it would be worth your time to investigate them.
